Measuring Guide

While we can guarantee the quality of our furniture we cannot guarantee that it will fit your home. This is something you need to look into. It can be heart breaking to fall in love with a piece of furniture and order it only to realize that it can’t get through your doorway. So we created an easy to follow measurement guide just for you.

How to understand our Dimensions

The dimensions of each piece of furniture are clearly stated in the product description. This is one part of the description you must pay special attention to. There are three dimensional aspects to each piece of furniture; length, depth and height. When facing furniture, the distance from the right extreme to the left is referred to as the length. Depth and width are synonymous. This refers to the distance between the front edge and the back edge. In the case of seating such as sofas, we may also mention the seating depth. (Will this be given?) This refers to the distance from the front edge of the seat to the back cushion. This dimension does not affect how the furniture will fit your room. Please note that all our furniture is hand made. Hence there may be a slight variation of 1-2” in the final furniture dimensions.

When it comes to delivery, you will also need the diagonal depth or height. Please contact our customer service team to find out the same- will this be mentioned on the webpage?

How to measure your space

There are two types of measurements you need to take. Firstly ensure that you have enough floor space for your furniture. For this you will need to consider the length and width of the furniture. The best way to do this is to mark the space your furniture will need by making a chalk outline on the floor. In case of sofas, cabinets etc that will be placed against a wall, also check the height of the furniture and ensure that it does not hide any light points, plug points etc.

The second set of measurements you need refers to the width of doorways and other such passages that the furniture must travel through to reach the room they are to be kept in. For doorways, you will need the height and width of the door when it is held open. You will also need to know the entry clearance available. In case of tight doorways, also measure the ceiling height. When it comes to passages and staircases, you will also need to measure the length. If the furniture needs to be put in an elevator, you should measure the length, width and height of the elevator.

Compare Dimensions

Now that you have these two sets of measurements, compare them to see that your furniture can fit the doorways and get into your home comfortably.

For small pieces of furniture like chairs, side tables and coffee tables, this is usually not much of an issue. In the case of larger pieces of furniture such as sofas, wardrobes, cabinets and dining tables, the furniture may need to be carried diagonally or on its side to fit through your doors. Thus, you need to ensure that these dimensions are lesser than the width and height of your doorway and passages.

In addition to the dimensions, also take note of fixtures such as chandeliers, fans, bannisters, wall art etc. that may obstruct delivery. We would also recommend that you remove rugs, knick-knacks etc. that may interfere with the movement of furniture.
